This is a rather newbie question for me, but as I have never needed to do it....Well, anyway, is there a way to comment a Java File and then create a javadoc style API like on Sun's site by running it through some engine? Is there a tag I can use on javac to accomplish this? A link would be great.
Or do I have to create the HTML myself?
Thanks

This might get you started.
hth,

P.S. Ant has a javadoc task that makes it SO simple to keep your javadoc up to date.

hi
There is actually no need to go in for ANT for this. java has a javadoc command somethin like javac and java. You could just use this command instead of using ant

Yes, but my point was that because Ant has a javadoc task that it makes it very easy to make sure that the javadoc is up to date via the build script rather than having to remember to do it by hand every now and again.
